She waited alone on the doorstep. A tattered suitcase her only friend.
Just waited for someone to blame.
He came toward her from out of the dark and somehow she knew his name.
She knew that he was on the run.
But that he did not care who knew.
She also knew she loved another and he was running too.
But this one had a wife just as lovely as she.
Maybe this other woman had the other key …..
Or maybe the man in the dark, the man with the name …
had called in yet another dame …
She glammed herself up, put a smirk on her face…
Then simply vanished without a trace.
